Blue Peter - Badge To The Summit of Everest
Blue Peter brings back so many childhood memories. When we were kids my brother and I would religiously watch it every day at 5pm. In fact, so did my parents. Blue Peter is the UK’s longest running children’s TV show, first airing way back in 1958, when the show ran for just 15 minutes on a Friday afternoon.
How Do You Train To Climb Mount Everest?
Climbing Mount Everest is a huge physical and mental challenge. I will spend 7-8 weeks living and climbing at extreme high altitude. As I climb higher on the mountain, the atmospheric pressure rapidly decreases, this means each breath I take will contain less molecules of Oxygen. My heart and lungs will have to work a whole lot harder to get the adequate amounts of Oxygen to my working muscles.
